Villa Romina was the dream of 2 sisters to create a truly Tuscan home from a ruin and they managed to realise their goal, which was to be able to share this charming villa, in its fabulous setting, with others. After several years of hard work and planning, their dreams became reality and today they have succeeded in creating a wonderful villa full of charm and warmth. This 6 bedroom, 6 bathroom villa is a perfect retreat for a large family group. It is located within easy reach of Pienza and set amidst the unique UNESCO protected landscapes of Val d’Orcia. Sought after items have been used in the restoration of the villa including antique oak floor boards, handmade bricks and terracotta tiles, original beams, handpainted tiles, all chosen in keeping with the local countryside that was the inspiration for their renovation. This combined with all modern amenities has created a wonderfully, comfortable holiday villa for guests to enjoy.
Pienza, a wonderful town famous for its cheese, is within easy reach (2km) and the wine towns of Montepulciano (14km) and Montalcino (22km) are a short drive away. This is a spectacular setting for a relaxing Tuscan holiday.
